Dries Van Noten Fall 2015 is that rare mix of beauty, intellect and empathy.

It’s what happens when fashion, art and history collide.  The layering is exceptional  – clever pieces, beautiful materials and brilliant lengths that reference the past – from the brocades of the tudors to the frills of the dandies. Combined with innovative textures and a lifeblood of ideas, the collection springs to life.
